This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Honda Civic Hatchback review.

Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

All models get a driver and passenger airbag and most have ABS brakes (not on 1.4 model except SE). It scored an average Euro NCAP crash test rating for its year. A decent immobiliser was fitted from 1996, but door locks were little protection.

Reasonable boot space although it's not that deep, with good access thanks to a wide opening. Split folding rear seats allow larger items to be carried.
